SENECA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office has filed additional charges against a Central teen who was charged in connection to the shooting death of a North Carolina man.

Deputies said 17-year-old Octavis Robinson, of Central, was charged with involuntary manslaughter in a homicide that occurred early Saturday morning in the Seneca area.

Deputies said they were called to West Cherry Road near the intersection of J.P. Stevens Road where they discovered a man with a gunshot wound.

The victim was taken to Oconee Medical Center, where investigators said he later died.

Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis identified the victim as 21-year-old Rashean Parker, II of Gastonia, NC.

Deputies said Robinson shot Parker in the back with a handgun in a car while they were fleeing the scene of an attempted armed robbery.

On Sunday, deputies said Robinson was charged with attempted armed robbery, possession of a weapon during commission of a violent crime, and attempted murder.

Deputies said Robinson attempted to steal from two people at an address on J.P. Stevens Road while he was armed with the handgun.

Deputies said Robinson attempted to kill one of the individuals during the attempted armed robbery by placing the gun in the victims face and pulling the trigger, but according to investigators, the gun misfired.

Tavis Campbell, 19, of Clemson, was also charged with attempted armed robbery and possession of a weapon during commission of a violent crime in the case, deputies said.

Deputies said Campbell also took part in the armed robbery attempt and was also armed with a handgun.

Deputies said the case remains under investigation.
